    Facilitated Application Specification Technique ("FAST")
    - It is a technique for requirements elicitation for software development.
    - The objective is to close the gap between what the developers intend and what users expect.
    - It is a team-oriented approach for gathering requirements.

    Basic guidelines
    1. Meetings are conducted at a neutral site attended by both developers and users.
    2. The group establishes rules for preparation and participation.
    3. An agenda is suggested that with enough formality to cover all important points but informal enough to encourage the free flow of ideas.
    4. A facilitator controls the meeting.
    5. A definition mechanism is used.

    - The main goal is to identify the problem, propose solutions, negotiate different approaches, and specify a preliminary set of software requirements in an atmosphere that is conductive to accomplish the goal.

    - After initial meeting, user and developer should write a one or two product request form. Before the next meeting it is distributed to all other attendees. Each attendee is asked to make the following lists:

    1. List of objects
    2. List of services
    3. List of constraints
    4. performance criteria
